How the Lodge at Edgewood Resort celebrates nature

Hirsch Bedner Associates has completed The Lodge at Edgewood Resort. Located at Lake Tahoe along the California/Nevada border, the resort has a pier for water sports, a 180-foot beach and a spa.

Exteriors of the property were completed by CCY Architects and are meant to complement the existing clubhouse.

According to Brooke Copani, an associate at HBA, the new space "connects" with nature rather than overshadowing it, using stone fireplaces and leather furniture.

The first thing guests see when they arrive is a cantilevered porte cochere roof extending along a stone-and-steel covered walkway to a two-story glazed vestibule. The Living Room has 38-foot-tall floor-to-roof windows overlooking the mountains beyond. There is also a fossil-inspired relief sculpture behind a monolithic stone slab reception desk. There is also a nearby fireplace and café, which connects to the Adventure Center.

The Great Room has a grand staircase, while a row of custom chandeliers are designed with a nod to the architecture of the neighboring clubhouse. This room also has natural elements that give the place a residential vibe.

A cocktail bar links the Great Room to the adjacent Bistro, which has wooden elements, nautical rope-inspired ceiling details, exhibition kitchen, communal-style table and private dining rooms.

The ballrooms use neutral tones and natural materials. There are also glass chandeliers, while the adjoining pre-function space has a fixed bar that can be concealed behind an oversized sliding art panel.

Located on the second level of the lodge, the Edgewood Spa has a timber print silhouette from behind the reception desk. The spa includes a bridal hair and nail salon, changing areas with steam rooms, and mountain-view.

The guestrooms have a wooded “mud room” (a changing area), in-room fireplace, historic local photographs, carved sculptural screening elements and wall art using trees salvaged from site construction. 

The cabins (or fractional ownership units) have kitchens, fireplaces, terraces and living/dining areas.

Other Edgewood amenities include a fitness center, Kid’s Camp with a treehouse-inspired interior, retail boutique and an infinity-edge swimming pool overlooking views of Lake Tahoe and surrounding peaks.
